    Good location close to the center but a bit of a climb. Hot water in the showers! Also good atmosphere, nice garden to chill in.

    Nice place to stay in Lençóis. Staff were friendly and helpful, very easy to book trips here even just the night before. Generally a chilled place, fairly quiet but a few hangout/social spaces to chat to people if you want. Would recommend.

    Good atmosphere at the hostel whilst I was there despite it being a small town. Hostel is in a good location, clean and a good relax area. Could book tours through the hostel but I decided to book one from town so there are other options :)

    Staff and hostel are amazing. Beds are comfy and the internet is the fastest I’ve experienced so far travelling through Brazil. Only problem I have is they charge you extra for early/late check in/out. And they don’t have soap in the bathroom, so you have to bring your own soap in the washroom after you’ve done your business. These shady practises keep me from giving it a better score. Overall it’s a good hostel in lençóis and they have a tour agency which is good too.

    The hotel is heritage so I understand it looks old. But they should remodel or at least clean the ceiling. I saw many spider net. The toilet could be cleaner too. The breakfast lady was very mean everyday. I almost felt like discrimination, She throw the plates on my stable. I don't have my own charging station, small light, small storage shelves, that was not convenient especially i was on the upper bed. Definitely not cheap for the hostel' condition.

    Their office system wasn't very organised, they tried to charge me for an extra night that I had already paid for. But the guy admitted his mistake and apologised. Wifi was very problematic, only worked half the time. Breakfast finishes at 9am. I turned up at 9.01 and the kitchenhand was very exasperated with me. I think as a host you owe it to your guests to make sure that paying guests are happy and well-fed, especially given that "time" is always such a relaxed concept elsewhere in Brasil.
